Plano Texas is known for its diversity. Hence, it offers several good Asian Grocery stores in town. My favorite in Plano is Asia World. It is located near Legacy Drive and US 75 (Central Expressway). It is relatively "new". It offers a good selection of Asian food.
Now, know that "Chinese" grocery can range from the original "Chinese" from mainland China. Yet, Chinese grocery could be different for Taiwanese Chinese, Malaysian Chinese (that's what I am), Indonesian Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Korean, Japanese, etc. Note: We are not all the same even though I may look "Chinese" but I'm Malaysian. The Chinese food I eat is more "localized" to the South-east Asian - similar to Singaporean food, but unlike Thai food - which then is also different from Vietnamese food. Have I got you all confused yet? Also, you can get a large variety of Asian grocery - including Indian groceries at Asia World.
The prices are good when compared to other Asian groceries in and around Plano. It has a large storefront and it's as big as any other American grocery store. If you feel like cooking Korean BBQ today, you can find all you need from Asia World. If you feel like making some Red Thai Curry, Asia World is your place. All the wonderful Asian snacks can be found at Asia World too. Not forgetting fresh seafood, unique and exotic foods - like pig's tongue, beef stomach and intestines, pork blood. Yes, many of us real Asian eat these kind of food. Not every day of course - as a delicacy.
